Here are the 15 questions, and below is the video:

1) What is one scrapbook item you do NOT own, that surprises you?
2) If you were designing your own line, what 3 elements would be REQUIRED?
3) What ONE item is a must for you to finish a layout?
4) Most used social media influence, besides YouTube?
5) Who is your Dream collaborator?
6) If money was no object, what would your first purchase be?
7) What do you have the most of in your stash?
8) Favourite item in your stash?
9) Most used item?
10) Where do you do your crafting?
11) Is there a layout or project you have been procrastinating on?
12) When you finish a layout does it go straight away or into a pile?
13) Scrappy Crush. Who would make you grin or just be so excited it they liked or commented on your project?
14) Favourite places to shop?
15) Dream job in the industry?

Scrapbooking Layout – Lego caterpillar

Hello everyone and happy Monday!

Today’s layout is part of a crafty game that I took part on the Mind The Scrap group, called Chinese Whispers. The concept is very simple: One person creates a layout based on a sketch, then sends it to person number 2 to scraplift, who then passes on to person three and then four (or as many people as you want in your group!). There were four of us in my group.

So today I am going to show you the first set of Chinese whispers that started with me. I based my layout on a sketch I found on Pinterest, and created my layout with my June Lottie Loves Paper kit. Here it is:

And here is the sketch:

I then passed on my layout to Helen, she passed hers to Lis, who passed hers to Michelle. Here are the next three:

Thanks for popping over friends, and read you very soon!

Layout Lookback video on youtube

Hi all!

I am still in Spain, but I thought I would post a video that I uploaded to youtube the other day with all the layouts that I created in the month of June. I actually love making these videos every month or so, as it gives me another opportunity to look at them before I put them away in the albums!

Here is the video. I’ll be back soon, and already have some layouts planned for when I’m home!

PS: Youtube allows me to schedule videos and create custom thumbnails… Cool!! I was looking forward to that and it has finally happened!

Read you soon!

Scrapbooking Layout – Mr Potato dream

Hi all!

Here’s a layout that I created on Monday for this week’s challenge over at For the Love of Pretty Paper. This week’s letter is F, and F is for Food! I saw this photo of my son from when he was obsessed with his Mr Potato Head and I thought it was perfect for the challenge! I hadn’t put any of my stuff away from the crop yet, so I managed to get the layout done downstairs whilst the kids were happy playing with themselves. Let me tell you, this does not happen often at all!

I also took the opportunity to enter this layout in a mini challenge over at the Lottie Loves Paper facebook group. The challenge was to use a recipe: just one photo, at least four pattern papers, stitching of some sort, something turquoise, stamping, bling and enamel.

Here is my layout:

The papers are all from previous Lottie Loves Paper kits, and the word dream and the butterfly are from Shimelle’s starshine collection. It is a very simple layout, but I actually love the simplicity of it. It is funny how I either go for very simple or very busy layouts! Very rarely the middle point 🙂

Here’s a close up of the stitching, as it can hardly be noticed in the main image!

You have probably seen me use this combination of papers before, and that’s because I looooooove them! Haha 🙂

I hope you have enjoyed this layout and read you soon!
